On Thursday, French police swarmed a dense 51-square-mile forest in their hunt for the Islamic terrorist brothers suspected of carrying out Wednesday’s deadly shooting massacre at the Paris office of a satirical magazine. Authorities say the two brothers, identified as Said and Cherif Kouachi, may be hiding out in the Forêt de Retz, a vast woodland described as “larger than Paris”.
The brothers were on the U.S. “no-fly” list for years, and word is they were well-trained with terrorist connections. Tom remains in Paris and will have the latest breaking developments in the terrorist shooting incident, as the manhunt for the two remaining suspects continues, and the Parisian community reacts to the events that unfolded on Wednesday.
